I was looking for a neurologist for my mom after she went without a diagnosis from her previous doctor and was not getting any better. Dr. Colopy changed her medication and her Parkinson’s symptoms improved dramatically. We have been very happy with Dr. Colopy and his staff.

I cannot express how important Dr Colopy has been to my recovery from viral encephalitis. Hospitalized for 3 weeks, upon my release, Dr Colopy has done a truly miraculous job of talking me through my recovery; physically, emotionally, mentally. Absolutely amazing Doctor and man. I recommend him to ANYONE who finds themself in need of a Neurologist who truly cares for YOU.

I have found Dr. Colopy to be an exceptional professional. I am not an easy patient to deal with and I have very high expectations and I tend to be a pain. I am very discriminating when it comes to medical issues. Dr. Colopy was accurate, complete, and most helpful in working with me to better understand what I was dealing with and assisting me to resolve my severe concussion and post-concussion related symptoms. I would without reserveation recommend him.

My experience at Dr. Colopy's office was superb. Everyone was very nice and everyone was knowledgeable and thorough in explaining tests and procedures. Dr. Colopy was especially patient, kind and caring. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable knowing that he had explained both my condition and all the possible treatments and recommendations for the future. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Provided no answers. Had my husband do a MRI and then said there was no difference in the report than what he had years ago. So he stated no reason for a follow up appointment. Husband still in pain and now has to go to another doctor. All I can say is ridiculous!!

Colopy had beeny neurologist for 20 years or so. He on occasion is judgemental and dumb. He fancied himself to be someone with a high degree of discernment in regard to one's overall medical condition. Well when one assumes to know something that they don't they becomes the first syllable in the word assume. If Paul had taken the time to familiarize himself with his patients complete medical condition he might actually have become worthy of the title Doctor of medicine.

Dr. Colopy was very impressive. He explained everything in terms my wife and I understood. He took more time with us than we every expected. He made no promises but clearly stated what my problems were and the method of treatment. His examination was more than I expected and he took all the time necessary. All of our questions were answered. He was very thorough, professional, and friendly. I look forward to working with him. His staff was very professional and friendly. I recommend him
